No transparency thin gray head. Full body black beer taste. A little dry and ashy. like ground coffee with bitter sweet chocolate roasted over an open fire

Art (2412) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle shared big thanks to Dan. Pours a deep dark brownish black without any head. Aromas of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, and dark fruits. Taste is smooth and roasty. Although fairly one-note, this is really great for how old it is. I was expecting a de molen beer but was very surprised.

Beerman6686 (5480) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Poured a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of deep dark roast, dark chocolate, and dark fruits. Flavor similar, more Americano zed than I would have expected, and gets a boost point for holding up for 8 years.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle: 2008 vintage. Huge thanks to Erik for trading me this 25cl beast. Thick, oily black pour with a creamy, fine-bubbled tan head that slowly forms moments later. Super robust aroma, could smell this as soon as I cracked the bottle. Molten fudge, chocolate cake, leather, bitter coffee grounds, anise, sweet blackcurrant, burnt caramel, brown sugar, a touch of smoke, heavily roasted malts just edging on ashy with a slight kiss of char. Flavor up front is full of silky, bittersweet dark chocolate. Like biting into a 86% cacao bar with wafts of coffee beans, roasted malts, & light anise following right behind. Lots of smoked barley, hinting with an underscore of leather, tobacco, & mild smoke, slightly reminiscent of Hair of the Dog’s Adam. Finishes with anise, dense fudge, light soy, burnt caramel, & bitter cocoa nibs. No oxidation, even with ~7 years on it. Delicious, with a creamy & smooth body. No bells & whistles, just a simple, amazing imperial stout.

gEUS (1538) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle at the Ultimate Imperial Stout Tasting. Hum, this one’s a bit over its time. One can still detect a decent dose of roasted malts and coffee, but it has faded and oxidation has kicked in through some port notes. Interesting nevertheless.

kraddel (4748) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle at the Ultimate Imperial Stout Tasting. Thnx for the awesome day, folks! This bottle was shared by gEUS. 2008 edition. Pours black, small grey head. Smell is green vegetables. Taste is bit bitter, good amount of roasted malts. Bit coffee. Nice, but not as nice as the hype goes ... ( Age ? )

Bottle [2008 version] @ WWT IV thanks to Caesar. Opaque pitch black color, medium to full sized creamy brown head that lasts for a long time and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, liquorice, alcohol, lightly roasted malts, caramel. Taste malts, liquorice, some alcohol, dark malts, moderately bitter. Decent body, soft carbonation. Past its prime I guess but still decent.
